Unattended WAIK Install

Trying to install the WAIK in an unattended/silent mode. Does anybody know how? Normal methods do not work.

In desperation in similar situations, I have resorted to using nonsense switch characters, in the hope that the nice developer Johnnie would prompt me with the valid set, like MSIExec does. Try 'Setup /_thisisridiculous' - the leading underscore attempts to avoid the stub taking the first character as the argument, which by chance could be valid.

The WAIK install is actually a MSI but when you try to use normal silent install commands, you are prompted with a dialog box stating that you must runb the install in full UI.

I presume you've tried the usual 'fix', of setting the property ISSETUPDRIVEN to 1?

I just tried that with the following command but with same results. Any other suggestions?

msiexec.exe /i /qb WAIK_x86.msi ISSETUPDRIVEN=1

There is only a limited number of ways this could be happening. Either a LaunchCondition is set or a Custom Action is being called to set a property. You just need to find it.

Edit
Found it for you. Create a transform and in it, take out the LaunchCondition "UILevel = 5","[String_MustHaveFullUI]"

MAKE SURE YOU FULLY TEST THE DEPLOYED APP! There has to be a reason they want full UI, I just haven';t had time to find out what yet. From a cursory glance it looks like it might simply be that they want to force the display of the EULA...
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
